Saint Paul de Vence

Hi Everybody,

There are some places that we never tire of visiting. For us Saint Paul de Vence is one of them.

Alas it is so popular that it is often teeming with visitors, but at the right time of day the lovely little streets and the town can be enjoyed to it’s full.

The views of the town as you approach it are lovely too and and each time I visit there seems a new aspect to paint a watercolour of.

This visit was no exception so I thought I would look back through previous paintings and gather them together in the blog post dedicated to the town.

Recently a new creperie has opened near to the Church in the town and I can really recommend it. The best crepes that I have ever eaten, prepared in the Normandy way. If you are there, try one, they are delicious!

St Paul is also full of art galleries and shops with items to tempt the tourist as you would expect but somehow they  add something to the town and  a extra dimension to the lovely architecture and the narrow streets.

Nearby  too is the bigger town of Vence , which has a very nice old town to discover too.

There are so many lovely places in this beautiful, and our favourite, part of France.

I hope you will enjoy these paintings of the town and if you haven’t visited  St Paul then do so one day. Crowds or not you will enjoy it.

Happy travelling

Brian

About brianswatercolours

After spending 40 years in Aerospace I now enjoy painting watercolours of our travels around the world. I also paint for others who would like reminders of there favourite places. Most of my paintings are painted from photos that I have taken, or taken by others. This blog shows some paintings from Yvonne's and my travels together.

  1. Oh my, these are as charming as ever. I love the third image especially, and while I had to look up where this town is, it reminds me of the bastide towns in Dordogne. As always, I am in awe of your paintings and I wish I could be half as good – keep it up, this is such a wonderful blog!
